Speakin of the Meters and N'awlins, have you seen that HBO show Treme'? A great story about the locals recovery from Katrina, but in particular the
story evolves around mostly musicians, and each episode has numerous live performances throughout it by actual bands. Most of the actors are actual
musicians too. The show is filmed in New Orleans also, but man the music, holy mother of funk is it big bottomed and blastin' with a truly unique
sound and snazzy performances. They sometimes use Tubas and trombones for bass lines, and often incorporate some marching drums. There are old
school jazz bands throughout too.
Here is an excerpt:

I love me some instrumental music and I could post probably 50 tunes ranging from Booker T & the MGs to The Ventures and right through Vince Guaraldi
and George Winston and be hard pressed to pick even a Top 10. It sort of depends on mood at the time, and any one of them could be my favorite,
But here's one that's really caught my ear relatively recently, and I don't think it's all that well known. From the Queens of the Stone Age
guitarist Josh Homme, I present: Desert Roll.
I've found instrumentals to be far more moving than vocals. Each to their own taste of course. Recently I've discovered some really great piano
techno that suprisingly turned me on. Try this one if it's up your ally. You won't be disappointed.
